The Japanese premiere of the first live-action “GANTZ” movie was held in Tokyo on Monday. Before the screening, it was announced that the film’s U.S. premiere has been decided, with plans for distribution to approximately 300 theaters across the country.

The film, based on Hiroya Oku‘s popular manga of the same name, stars Kazunari Ninomiya and Kenichi Matsuyama. It is the first of two planned movies, which are scheduled for wide release in Japan on January 29 and April 23, respectively.

The U.S. will get a wide release of the film first, starting on January 20. Specific details about theaters and dates have not yet been announced.  Source: wwww.tokyograph.com/news/id-7077
